ELSIE H. DELANEY [Frostburg]

FROSTBURG — Elsie Hunter Delaney, 91, of 10 Beall St., Frostburg, passed to heaven on Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born Nov. 17, 1921, in Frostburg to the late Cora (Hanson) Hunter and William O. Hunter. She was also preceded in passing by her husband, Joseph Thomas Delaney and a brother, Harry Hunter.

Mrs. Delaney was a graduate of Beall High School and Frostburg State College. She was retired from Frostburg State University Lewis J. Ort Library.

Surviving are her beloved sister, Frances Loughney; loving children, Ginger Delaney, Kay Delaney, Joe Delaney and wife Renee, Maureen Peterson and husband Phil and Cindy John and husband Chris; grandchildren, Darren Rader, Paula Korab and husband Jerry, Troy Akers, Jared May, Danny and Ryan John, Corey Delaney and wife Elizabeth and Kelly Delaney; great-granddaughter, Kayla Rader as well as many special nieces and nephews.

Family and friends will be received at Durst Funeral Home, 57 Frost Ave., Frostburg, on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013, from 5 to 9 p.m.

Funeral services will be conducted in the funeral home on Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2013, at 11 a.m. with Father Ed Hendricks as celebrant.

Interment will be in the Maryland State Veterans Cemetery at Rocky Gap. The grandsons will serve as pallbearers.

During her lifetime, Mrs. Delaney donated 80 pints of blood to the American Red Cross as this was a cause close to her heart. Her wish was that any contributions be made to the American Red Cross in her memory.

Mom, no matter what has happened to us and no matter what shall ever happen to us, we consider ourselves the luckiest people who ever lived, for having you as a Mother. As we mourn our loss, and celebrate your life, we will try to do so by the examples you taught us…during our darkest moments our love, care and faith will shine the brightest.

God needed another angel by his side.
